Game of Guilt
filed in Finding Soul on May 11, 2009
Are you engaging in the game of guilt? So many men and women write to me about “guilt” and how to let it go, explaining the anguish of its grip.
Guilt can surface in many different circumstances. Know matter what situation is occurring if guilt surfaces it means you have put yourself in a box and am playing the game of guilt.
The guilt game causes you to stay stuck in one place, obsessing and feeling like you have done something wrong. It is where you expect some punishment and believe you are unworthy. This unworthiness goes very deep and it is coming up because it is time for you to look at how you feel about yourself and let go of the negative self image you may have. It may be telling you that you do not honor yourself.
If you are stuck in guilt you are being unkind to yourself instead of honoring and respecting yourself.
Ask yourself now, “If I let go of this guilt what will happen”. “ Will I disappear?” “Will I find out I am really as bad as I think I am? Will I find my real worthiness? “Will I feel my sadness over what has triggered the guilt, and be able to let go instead of mentally obsessing over the event? “Will I find that I cannot forgive myself or others”?
If you let go of guilt you will drop down into your compassion and genuine loving self and discover your inherent good that is inside of you. Get yourself out of the box you put yourself in and jump into the circle of self-love and self-forgiveness.
